Explore our collection of distinctive and environmentally conscious papers, crafted from unconventional materials like grass, cannabis, reindeer poo, and even repurposed coffee cups!
Flower petal paper is recycled paper that contains natural summer flower petals which are infused into the paper. Each sheet has a tactile finish with different petals, making each one one of a kind. Crafted by British artisan papermakers using the century old heritage Fourdrinier machinery. Petal paper is also popular at our commercial studio for wedding stationery.
Seed paper is produced from at least 70% post-consumer waste and is infused with UK native wildflower seeds; Birdsfoot Trefoil, Black Knapweed, Black Medick, Meadow Buttercup, Musk Mallow, Ox-Eye Daisy, Ribwort Plantain, Red Campion, Salad Burnet, Self Heal, White Campion & Yarrow. Wildflowers play a critical role to pollinators and insects with food from leaves, pollen, nectar, shelter and places to breed. Each product produced on seed paper is printed using heat-free technology and can be planted to grow into wildflowers.
Grass Paper is produced by GMUND and is part of the Bio Cycle range. This stock is crafted from grass cut in the Upper Bavarian meadows which constitutes 50% of this paper, saving valuable resources. The grass is meticulously harvested and dried to achieve the long-fibred structure. The bold, vivid green colour is captured in part by adding natural chlorophyll.
Reindeer Poo Paper
Reindeer Poo Paper is manufactured from 75% UK post-consumer waste and 25% reindeer dung from Whipsnade Safari Park. A reindeer has a unique digestive system because its poop contains nothing more than fibres and some microbes which are destroyed when freeze-dried. To remove bacteria from the paper non-chlorine methods are utilised.
Coffee Cup Paper
GF Smith's Extract paper takes disposable coffee cups destined for landfill and transforms them into quality paper. Bails of coffee cups go into a big machine and the plastic is removed (this becomes things like coverings of cabling). The clean paper pulp then comes out the other end, which then gets made into Extract. Extract is available in 10 different colours.
Cannabis paper is cultivated from high-quality cellulose found in European-grown cannabis. Cannabis can be detected both in the subdued colour of the paper, as well as, in small amounts of vegetal inclusions. Additionally, the paper has a slightly coarse texture which is evident from hemp additive. This stock embraces everything natural and evokes a ‘natural high’ vibe.
Poppy paper is a recycled and handmade paper that is infused with poppy seeds. It's a popular alternative to our wildflower seed paper.
Wheat paper, also known as wheat straw paper, is a type of paper made from the fibers of wheat straw, the residue left over after wheat grains are harvested. It is an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional wood-based paper, as it utilises agricultural waste that would otherwise be discarded. Wheat paper has a natural and textured appearance.
Gold and Silver Fleck Paper
Gold & Silver Fleck paper is a recycled paper containing gold and silver flecks. Crafted by English artisan papermakers.
